April 7 - 27, 2012

an Adrian Bellesguard
solo exhibition

Adrian Bellesguard brings his collection of Women to Rodez Art Gallery this April 7th. Bellesguard grew up in Spain and studied at England's University of Southampton obtaining a Master in European Art but considers himself a self-taught artist. He considers Ramon Calsina and Leonor Fini to be his mentors, but was also influenced by Francis Bacon, Goya, expressionism, and neo-expressionism.

Using George Braque's words, Bellesguard states, "The goal is not to be concerned with the reconstruction of an anecdotal fact but with the constitution of a pictorial fact. Women is just a chosen excuse to paint a painting."

He goes on to say, "Conceptual art does not exist, what remains in conceptual art is precisely what is NOT conceptual, art and concept exclude each other. Art can include a concept but there is no art in a concept alone.
An idea is not art.

Come meet the artist on opening night as Women opens to the public on Saturday, April 7 during Coconut Grove Gallery Night and will be on view through April 27, 2012.

Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday, 11 am to 7 pm, and Friday & Saturday, 11 am to 10 pm
